"The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen."

That was fun! Ok, so I got this off Brandy's Blog. You think 'ya'll' really upped my Dixie speak? LOL! I thought it was interesting, some words I had never heard of. Yes, Kleenex refers to any tissue that catches my boogers and Coke is anything carbonated. As well as Band-Aids, any bandage, any cartoon, that goes over a boo-boo. :) hmmm...I wonder if my schooling in IL contributed to the Yankee/Upper Midwestern part? And, where is spanglish. I can't forward this to my family because I don't think they would even register on this chart. ROFL!

LOL! I was shocked that I wasn't 100% Dixie! I was answering those questions expecting something to pop up on the screen at the end and just simply say "HICK" ;) Yes, I call a shopping cart a "buggy" and the room under the house a basement and I say "y'all" like every other word.
